I have managed to get hold of a bit of Mahogany. 25 year old. One of two window sills that my father had made.

It has a slope machined on it, so use able plank size, would be 1 1/4 X 6 inches by 39.5 inches length.

Grain seem's to run straight down it, but I can't tell from the ends at the moment, if it is quarter sawn, but I doubt it is.

If I were to use this to make a laminate neck, the quarter sawn bit should not matter?

It could be cut to allow more height, for perhaps thicker laminates for a neck through, but is 39 inches enough?

Also. In the current absence of a bench joiner, has anyone ever considered using an electric planer, mounted upside down, through an aperture in some thick MDF, as a joiner?

You might just get a neck thru out of 39.5" but I would make a design and check first.

If its laminated it doesnt matter if its quarter or flat sawn both will be fine, rift sawn might still be a lil dodgy, not sure.

I have thought of using a electric planer like that, but I'm not sure how I would mount it, but it could probably be done.

Cool. Set neck would not be a problem though I guess?

WTF is "Rift Sawn"?
